The Church of Scientology’s innermost and darkest secrets are revealed by Karen de la Carriere, former wife of Scientology president Heber Jentzsch, who has faced harassment from the Church since leaving in 2010. Carriere describes how the Church cut her off from her son and hid his death from her. She details the church’s exploitation of children and explains why Scientology celebrities like Tom Cruise and John Travolta turn a blind eye to the Church’s inhuman treatment of its members. Finally, we look at the 2008 Anonymous protest against the practices of the Church and the sadism of Scientology leader David Miscavige, in this uncensored Media Mayhem interview hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
Karen de la Carriere left the Church of Scientology in 2010 after being in it for 35 years. She was dubbed the “Queen of Scientology” as she was married to its President, Heber Jentzsch and rubbed shoulders with the likes of John Travolta. Karen went from being in the top ranks within the organization to being called a “Suppressive Person”. Karen and her husband had one child, son Alexander Jentzsch who lost his life two years ago in 2012. Reports say 27-year-old Alexander died after an accident. Ms. de la Carriere said at the time she had not seen her son for 2 years, because she was shunned from him after it was revealed she had been criticizing the Church. She found out of his death through a Facebook posting.
